Custom Orders for Bespoke Jewellery and Sculptures Welcome
Custom Orders, Bespoke Designs & Commissions
Talk to me about your unique requirements for a special day, a significant birthday or memorable event.
Creating bespoke pieces for customers is a very important part of what I do. I firmly believe one design does NOT suit all and I will work with you, the customer, to create something unique.
Some projects are more challenging than others, some have a nice story attached to them, but the most important thing is that people who contact us trust us with something precious or cherished and what I craft for them makes them happy.
